Time’s Up Spent 45% More on Staff Salaries Than Legal Defense Fund in 2019

Former CEO Lisa Borders was paid $590,000 for the year despite resigning in February 2019

Time’s Up spent 45% more on staff salaries in 2019 than on its Legal Defense Fund — including $590,000 to Lisa Borders, who served less than two months that year as the nonprofit’s CEO, according to tax records reviewed by TheWrap.

Staff compensation represented a high portion of the Time’s Up budget in its first full year of operation. According to the group’s 2019 990 forms, Time’s Up took in nearly $11.5 million in contributions and other revenue in 2019, spent $4.5 million on salaries and other compensation, and handed out a total of $3.1 million in grants to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. That fund, administered entirely by the independent National Women’s Law Center, provides legal and PR support for victims of workplace harassment.
